Due to Covid regulations and our assurance of social distancing, we have decided to incorporate, The Beauty Shop, our sister music club, Bar DKDC, our newest Back Dō Oasis Patio behind the Beauty Shop and our patio out front of the Beauty Shop.

In addition to the two outdoor igloos, we also now have multiple greenhouses outside to assist in social distancing and outdoor eating even during cold or rainy weather. These can be reserved via outdoor table bookings.

This is one way we can keep social distancing in place and still give all of you a great experience when you come back to see us.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you! We are doing everything we can to make sure your dining experience is comfortable and safe.

First time visit. We were just in town for the night and I happened to find The Beauty Salon. The menu looked amazing and it did not disappoint!! We shared 3 small plates and 1 entree. Everything was very very good. Service was great and we loved the design/atmosphere of the space. We will bring some friends next time we come

We reserved an outdoor enclosed bubble, and it was seriously one of the best dining experiences - we loved being in a private bubble where we couldn't hear other tables, just each other! And of course it felt very safe to be removed from other people. The service was great and the food as always is amazing.

Good food, poor value. I enjoyed the food, which was unique. But it was on the expensive side, and automatic 18% gratuity was added for a party of two with no explanation.

The Beauty Shop
Responded 5 days ago

In light of covid, once our PPP loans expired and we could no longer match our employees' pay, we implemented an 18% gratuity on our weekend brunch shifts. On our menus, it states "To help our staff who have been struggling from the effects of this pandemic, an 18% gratuity will be added to all checks. Thank you for your understanding during this time." We don't try to hide this and I apologize you felt blindsighted. It was definitely not our intention!

Food as usual was excellent. Karen’s kitchen is always consistent and creative.

Service however was brusque and made the Soviet era seem warm and efficient. Server wore an outdoor jacket the entire time and most requests were met with short clipped answers. Clearly seemed out out to be waiting tables. About the same warmth and atmosphere of a transaction with a toll booth attendant. Had to ask the other server for water and when we wanted drinks etc. I get social distancing but that doesn’t mean total distancing from your tables. The other server was social distanced but still was friendly and even up sold on the alcohol. Which is how it should be done.

Made a big deal about covid but people were taking their masks off for pictures and social media posts and no one seemed to care (yes. I have a pic of this taking place)

Responded on January 11, 2021

During the week, servers often have tables inside and outside. The jacket is understandable but a lack of warmth is not. We will remind our staff to be extra friendly and warm since it is hard to see emotion behind a mask! We ask all guests to wear masks when actively moving around the building and comply with all health department regulations. With only 5 front of house staff in a night and 3 seating areas, it is nearly impossible to babysit all of our guests and we are doing the best we can!

Great experience. Use of plastic greenhouses on the sidewalk (with small heaters) was excellent in this pandemic time, but hopefully will continue as a great (semi) private experience. Great service, and enjoyed going out during times while feelings safe in the bubble. As usual, the food and service were great.

Finally got in as they are being incredibly safe during the pandemic. Eating in the outdoor ‘greenhouse’ was an awesome experience. Right on the sidewalk. Cold January day but we couldn’t tell. You could hear the low rumble of conversations and outdoor traffic but didn’t hinder conversation in any way! In fact it added to it.
And the food....amazing! Different. Healthy. Appetizing. Filling. Wonderful. From appetizer to dessert. It was all top notch.

I read about The Beauty Shop in a magazine on a plane a few years ago. So next trip to Memphis made my way there. It is amazing! The way the old hairdryers and wash bowls have been kept and incorporated into the restaurant is such fun! My understanding is that Priscilla Presley had her hair done at that actual shop. The food is wonderful. I especially love the truffle fries. The staff is so personable and friendly. We have eaten there 3 times..every trip to Memphis should include a visit to The Beauty Shop! Highly recommend.!

We arrived for our reservation about 7 minutes early. I called from outside because the door was locked, and was told that they don’t open until 5pm (which was when our reservation was made for). I told the lady who I was and that we had a 5pm table reserved for 4....she said we don’t open til 5. Sooo, we waited outside in the chilly air until 5pm when they let us in. At this point only 2 of us had arrived and they walked us to the back porch where our igloo was reserved. Upon opening the igloo we noticed it was only a table for 2. I said we made a reservation for 4... she said NO, and left. We were left standing there completely dismayed. The kind waiter (who had no idea what was happening) tried to squeeze one more chair in, (because at this point our 4th cancelled and our third was on the way.......)but it was way too small and not going to work. So, we left. Honestly, we were so perplexed and so disappointed that it took us a while to shake off what happened. Luckily we ended up down the street and enjoyed our evening.
